*Ghee will give the dish the most depth. (Click here for a recipe to make your own ghee.)
**If using bamboo skewers, soak in water for at least half an hour to prevent them from burning on the grill.
In a gallon-size zip top bag, combine orange juice, lemon juice, vinegar, ghee, Tandoori Seasoning, and salt. Add chicken pieces and refrigerate for 4 to 12 hours (longer is better). Remove chicken from marinade; reserve remaining marinade to make the sauce. Skewer chicken pieces in an ‘S’ shape, 2 to 3 per skewer, and set aside. Preheat grill or broiler and as it heats, pour reserved marinade into a small saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until marinade thickens to the point where it coats the back of a wooden spoon. While sauce reduces, grill chicken over high heat until it is cooked through. To finish the sauce, reduce heat to low and whisk in yogurt until smooth. Cover and simmer for 7 to 10 min., stirring occasionally. Season with additional salt to taste.
Serve skewers over rice, topped with sauce and fresh cilantro. For a fresh, summery flavor, mix in diced tomatoes and/or cucumbers into the sauce.
